IAD Africa Summer Internship Program

Victorial Falls

The Institute for African Development's Africa Summer Internship Program reinforces academic learning by providing undergraduates the opportunity to actively engage with individuals and organizations directly involved in policy and program development in Africa.

The institute and its partners view placements as an integral part of the students’ education, immersing them in field experiences that seek to achieve awareness of developmental challenges and intercultural understanding. Interns work closely with a supervisor, colleagues and peers on development-related challenges including court efficiency, labor, gender, land tenure, nutrition and food security, migration, and conservation.


The internship is open to all enrolled sophomores, juniors, and rising seniors. Applicants are required to attend at least four seminars offered within the CRP 4700 Issues in African Development, must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and must commit to the full eight-week placement.
